Black and white combos also are a great backdrop for a hint of color. Pastels may get lost among the bold print, but a bright color can hold its own.
“I love this black and white trend right now,” said makeup artist Alex Mendez-Kelley, owner of The MakeUp Bar. “Of course, this is what I wear every day. It is the best trend to add accessories to, either statement jewelry or long layers, a pop of color in shoes or handbags.”
In makeup, it's exactly the same idea, she said. Try a bold black eyeliner, an extreme cat eye or mimic Adele's heavy-lined eyes. But don't make eyes compete with lots of other makeup, she said.
To ensure the eyeliner looks awesome, steer clear of shimmer. Keep eye shadow simple and matte. To make a statement with your lips, go bold with hot pink, she suggested.
